It’s been a busy day for the Phillies and they haven’t even played a game yet. They’ll attempt to sweep the Arizona Diamondbacks tonight.
J.A Happ survived the trade rumors–for now. He is coming off his first loss of the season after allowing five earned runs against the Cardinals. Happ has had a solid season and looks to build a new win streak tonight against a Diamondbacks’ lineup that has scored only one run off a Phillies starter.
The Phillies have a good chance to score runs off Yusmeiro Petit, who has very bad numbers. In addition, if the Diamondbacks defense continues to play poorly, the Phillies could be looking at double-digits in the runs column.
Your Gameday Beer – Sawtooth Ale
Reader Chris recommends tonight’s beer, Sawtooth Ale from the Left Hand Brewing Company in Colorado. It comes in honor of the Phillies new look rotation – chock full of lefties. This medium-bodied amber ale is well balanced with nutty, caramel flavors. It’s also a bitter, so if you’re bummer about not getting Halladay this beer is for you. Left Hand recommends pairing it with grilled salmon. – By Brian
